Angus J Law recently posted this interesting look at ZBrush in the manufacturing world. You never know what you’ll find inside the ZBSee experience. His thread features a four step process that covers sculpting, CNC programming, tool and die work and finally, the addition of the finished piece to the crocodile hand bag. Check out his user gallery for more unexpected product designs. Angus is a London based ZBrusher and from the looks of it, he’s getting his “bling” on.
Joe Menna is an established “fan favorite” on the ZBrushCentral forum. He’s been touted as the “hardest working man in the toy business”. Surely a play on an old James Brown reference, but nonetheless fitting. Lately, Joe and his wife Julianna have been actively working at tearing up the art scenes in major cities across North America. The pair have the perfect mix of digital sculpting and traditional skills working in their favor. With Joe as an established player in the toy game and Julianna featured in galleries from Philly to San Fran, you can bet this one-two punch is here to stay!

Exploring the finer side of ZBrush, T.S. Wittelsbach dares to dream up jewelry that’s outta this world. His latest post has earned him a highly coveted spot on the Top Row. Be sure to visit his website to keep up with his exploits.
The most recent Top Row thread is from Jack du Rose, a jewelry designer who uses ZBrush to bring his incredibly ornate designs to life. The images he posted are from his “Danger” collection. The series contains eight pieces that are based on animals and insects one would typically consider dangerous (lion, black widow, dart frog, etc). Along with the finished product, he’s also posted a few ZBrush screen grabs and some photos from the manufacturing process. This impressive lot is just another example of how ZBrush can be used in quite a few industries.
